Mid 70's Marantz 7 Imperial question

I know they were Marantz's answer (that failed badly) to the JBL L100. My question: Did marantz make a blue colored 12" woofer for the 7 Imperial? I cannot find a pic on the internet.

I ask because I can get a pair of 7s free if I just pick them up from a guy. He told me the woofers are blue and if they are 'replacements' then I dont want to make the drive.

Thanks

Free speakers? How long of a drive can it be that they aren't worth the drive? And even replacement drivers could sound fine.

I have a pair with new foam surrounds so no idea if the blue was there originally; mine are gray. I liked them enough to get replacement drivers for the mids on ebay as those drivers are 30 years old. I'd say they are great party speakers: bass-laden, loud and durable.
